Conduit is one of my favorite Dog As Master works and an excellent place to start for those interested in checking out some of my electronic industrial music from the 1980s. Heavy Moog synthesizer soundscapes mixed with cut and paste tape collages, oblique spoken word interjections. Powerful, propulsive, fiery. A good example of my work that burns with "positive anger". Originally released on cassette in 1986, C53, on the Cause And Effect label.
review by Allen Densen, Black Orbit Newsletter, Canada, 1986
A set of four harsh electronic pieces to wake the neighbors. The first track, 'gauge', is an industrial sequencer piece; the next two are fascinating sound destructions with meticulous layout and editing; and the final track, 'eclipse', could be described as the noisiest death knell I've ever heard. Hal McGee could be the J.S. Bach of Industrial electronics.
released May 1, 1986
Muzzy, warped and unpredictable, 'Songs About Jason' presumably is Dilloway's tribute to his 'Grapes & Snakes' cohort Jason Lescalleet – whose -disc 'Songs About Nothing' vied with Dilloway's 2-disc 'Modern Jester' for Best of 2012. Steve Smith
